Environmental Action on Thetis Island, BC, Canada
    Although Thetis Island is remarkably fortunate in being, still, a relatively "unspoiled" environment, we are also part of the larger world, and each of us, every day, makes decisions that either contribute to reducing the burden on the planet, or increasing it. This page is here as a place to post ideas, links, notices, suggestions, and commentary related to evironmental concerns.

    Please help us to keep this page current and useful. Contribute to it by email or phone (Veronica at 246-1509) or in writing to TINet, Box 6-15, Thetis Island.
